This 18 Kt gold ring features an authentic Roman carnelian dating back to the second-third century AD. The carnelian depicts a grazing horse, which was highly revered in ancient Roman culture as a symbol of rebirth, fertility, and strength. Horses were considered to be fully intertwined with the myth and origins of the world, and they were often depicted on public art and household items.


In ancient Rome, horses were highly valued for their role in both domestic and military life. They were the faithful companions of warriors and soldiers, and their strength and agility were highly prized in battle. The horse was also seen as a symbol of continuity of life, representing the cycle of birth and rebirth.

The horse was a popular motif in Roman art, appearing on everything from coins to tableware, tombstones to jewelry. The grazing horse depicted on this carnelian is a testament to the enduring appeal of this majestic animal and its importance in Roman culture.
